Comfort Kitchen, opened January 2023, was one of Boston’s most anticipated restaurant openings of the year, which landed right in the very first days of 2023. The long-awaited Comfort Kitchen uses its menu to highlight global comfort foods through the lens of the international spice trade. That translates to dishes like jerk-roasted duck legs, seared okra with masala-spiced yogurt, and a whole lot more. There’s also a daytime cafe with pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and quirky sandwiches and salads. It was named in December 2023 as the best restaurant in Boston by The Boston Globe with 5 stars.
